    Definitely, they say on the website that the majority of offers are given out at late march
    I emailed admssions and they said all decisions will be made by the 31st of March. Interviews end on the 18th so HOPEFULLY it shouldnt be too long until we all hear back!

    My school have ran the project for the last couple of years, it's awesome! We're going to build new classrooms and help mary's meals etc. I need to raise about £1500 though, but I'm planning a big fundraiser soon Not shabby at all for a state school!
    My college is doing something like this with a group called World Challenge. We're going to Namibia but we have to raise £3155 plus anything like vacinations, equipment etc so expensive but at least it'll show commitment

    You've probs already got loads of ideas but a really easy one is give people smartie tubes (with smarties in) and ask them when they're finished to fill it with 20p's. You get £12 in one tube of smarties and so far I've rasied over £400 from it \<you probably weren't looking for any ideas but heres one anyways

    Sounds like you had a good interview. That is exactly what I felt like, not sure whether my grades are good enough either which is quite frustrating!!

    The med school is amazing, by far the best I've seen!!

    Is St Andrews your top choice?
    Yes definately my top choice, it's a shame it wasnt close to a major city where hosptial attachments could mean the whole course could be taught there! But still for the preclinical grouding with the dissections and applied medicine course it almost seems to good to be true. I want in so badly
    You have definately got a good chance if your a school-leaver, good to hear from you again Ryan, I'm sure you'll have no trouble getting in Top choice also?? Do you mind the extra year?

    I SO remember you! Had the interview at the same time as me! What you told me matches up with your application choices.
    I was the english one who has the impy interview next week, and was discussing the NHS reforms before the interview and you told me they weren't happening in Scotland... I clearly had done my research
    Mine was pretty nice too Which would make a rejection even harder to deal with...
    Out of interest, how long did you talk about the article for? I swear they asked me two quick questions on it, which can't have taken more than five minutes, then they moved on to general hobbies and stuff.
    good luck anyway
    Haha brillant! I can pin a face to one poster on here now :P You were the posh girl (jokes ) thats great your on here too
    Your totally excused for not knowing the NHS reforms don't apply to Scotland (for now..) since your an English school leaver, thanks for giving me a question I could answer before the interviews to gain me some confidence (didn't touch on the reforms at all though! haha).
    In terms of the article we discussed it for a wee while actually, I'm not even sure if I had to summarise it looking back, I think we kinda had a mini discussion just on a couple of matters concerning the way it was written etc (obviously can't go into much detail here).
    Still though not that hopeful of getting in, it's like 10-15 graduate slots and I am sure I have a lot of competition :cool:

    Did you end up taking the article home, I did although not delibarately, not sure if its a big deal?

    Did you enjoy the tour?

    Good luck at impy! Hope you smash it. Let me know on this thread or via a PM how it goes

    P.S Just remember randomly shaking your (presuming) Dad at the bus stop as I thought it was the polite thing to do. What post-interview adrenaline does to me hahaha!

    Yea that's what I thought ... Dundee medical school use to belong to St Andrews and the St Andrews medics use to go there for their clinical years but then Dundee became a seperate uni ... sad times

    Thats what I think, the pre clinical are the most important years anyway and then you get to go to a huge city!!

    Well I hope I get an offer because it's deff my top choice
    I really like the extra year, because I would want to do a the intercalated degree in a 5 yr degree anyway. Do you mind the extra year?

    I was wearing a black tie and a white shirt and I was the annoying one using 3 different colours in the articles to highlight different things... where you there then ?
    how did it go ?

    Hey, i have my interview on monday over skype (im from canada). I'm trying to prepare, but cant really find much- does anyone know where i can get more information, their website it pretty useless ( the medicine webpage). Where can i find stuff about the schedule and the courses. You see, i really dunno how it is there, considering here we do undergrad and must choose extra unrelated subjects even if we're doing a specific undergrad degree like health sciences. From st andrews website, i cant find out the required courses or the extra ones i may take (electives)

    Thanks!! Lat year UKCAT was 632.5, GCSES 10 A* and predicted grades were A*AAA and I was rejected post interview. Feedback they have was to improve UKCAT and apply when you have your ALevels and improve on the article response at the interview.

    This year UKCAT was 687.5 and i had my actual A Level grades of A*AAA and i think the article discussion was still a bit pants because id pretty much forgotten about it during the first half of the interview
